There are females on here that put male in profile to not be bugged too much by male forumusers.

Eventually we will get past that,much more females that play games compared to the past,also lots of females play mmos.

You know, part of me suspected that might just be the case. I mean I've read about stuff like that happening in gaming (women in gaming feeling unsafe being out as women), but honestly haven't been connected enough to the online gaming community to really know first-hand. I still pretty exclusively play offline, and mostly single-player titles at that.

Hearing lots of stuff about sexual harassment is, in fact, one part of the reason why I don't get more involved in like online gaming, in addition to just personal aesthetic preferences. It's a combination of those things for me. Also part of the reason why, in stark contrast to offline where I'm not even out, I make it clear what my sexual orientation is in heavily male online spaces like this. Not only is it nice to be able to be out reasonably safely somewhere, but it also reduces sexual harassment to let people know what my boundaries are clearly. It's useful that way too in settings like this, I find. I also have the benefit of assumption going for me, as I find that VGC users instinctively assume I'm male until I formally tell them otherwise.

Anyway, yeah, I do see stats sometimes that suggest women today compose a significant minority of the gaming population (for example here's the official Entertainment Software Association data on American gamers over the last 15 years, which suggests about 40% are female), but those stats are based on a more generous definition of the term "gamer" than most people, including most women who game, would embrace, and to which end honestly the Quantic Foundry survey data, which suggests that about 20% of gamers are female, seems more believable to me. That seems more like the world I actually live in.

When I first started here there were a fair few female members and quite high profile ones and most have left it seems to me that the reasons would be pretty much the same as we see with other past members things like changing circumstance, different priorities etc and another factor that doesn't get mentioned much is when members see close contacts leave or take on a lurker status unless they are highly invested in the site they also move on.

Another thing I noticed was even though the site came across as respectful with little toxicity if any, what I did notice was an heightened  air of friendliness this was especially noticeable on some female members walls where the posting was normal but the level of interest in that particular person's wall seemed way higher than usual.

Considering the Xbox Series X has no exclusive games, even if all PS5 had was like, Knack 3 or something it'd still win.

That said, assuming we're not factoring Gamepass/PC, I still go PS5 by a mile. there's 5 or 6 games in that lineup I absolutely must have (With pedigree behind the franchises or creators), but none on Xbox I care much about. There's a bunch on both sides that look cool or original or fun, but entirely too many games on especially the Xbox list don't have enough information. I've seen gameplay from Spider-Man and Ratche & Clank. I've played Demon's Souls. Horizon has an outstanding prior entry in the series. Kena looks good but I need to know more. Etc.



Will be playing Series X exclusives/console games on PC anyway so PS5 naturally. Anyway list for fun (bolded are must have games for me) -

PS5:

- Demon's Souls
- Horizon 2: Forbidden West
- Astro's playroom
- Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
- Kena (Timed/PC)

- Spiderman Miles Morales
- Returnal
- GhostWire: Tokyo

Microsoft (Series X)

If I have made a mistake or missed something, please correct it. I had a bit problems with the exclusivity of some Xbox games.

What do you think about this comparison? Which set of exclusive games is better? What games are you waiting for?

I don't think it counts as an exclusive if I can get it on PC.  Not playing GT7 on PC, but there will definitely be Forza.  On that, Xbox has like one or two actual exclusives. Therefore, PS5 has better exclusives, because there's no way those 2 Xbox exclusives will trump all of the PS5 exclusives.

And I don't think of "console exclusives" to give a pass to games that comes to PC, as if the PC isn't also a home device.  The fact of the matter is that I have not, nor will ever, own an xbox, and can still play Forza, halo, Gears, and Killer Instinct, etc.

Though, if I'm being completely honest, only destruction all-stars is interesting to me, apart from GT7.  And I'm not even a big car fan, so the PS4 exclusives aren't really doing much for me outside of that.

Horizon 2, maybe, but how much is the game really going to evolve past press Square to melee, shoot a few arrows, and jump?  We've had these linear story driven games since PS3, and I don't have faith in developers using the PS5's power to give us something that feels truly next gen. Detroit: Become Human and Batman: Arkham Knight are the only PS4 games I've ever finished. It's mostly to do with I mostly only play competitive games but the story games don't seem to be special anymore.  I've played Uncharted 2-3, Last of Us, Tomb Raider, Batman, etc on PS3.  The sequels on PS4, and PC just doesn't do anything for me, because they all feel like the same type of game.

I wont say those games are just strictly shooting galleries with a story behind them, (That was Max Payne 3, and omg did that game burn me out after the Brazil section)  But they don't expand enough on gameplay to keep me interested these days.

Some months they are trash, but other months they have good games on GWG. For instance, just in the last 12 months, GWG has had games like Tekken 6, Jurassic World Evolution, both seasons of Telltale's Batman, 2 Shantae games, Call of Cthulhu, Ninja Gaiden 3, Sonic Generations, and Saints Row 2. I reckon they could get at least 2 more decent games on Gamepass each month with the GWG money. 

Hard to believe Tekken 6 is like 13 years old already.  That's what I call a real console exclusive, and it's so old you can't get it digital on PS3, because it's older than the Sony regulation to push all physical games to their digital store.  Sonic Generations is another 9+ year old game, and the physics are really janky.  I wonder if Ninja Gaiden 3 is any good, but if you can't tell the difference between Tekken 6 or 7, then you haven't played the games you're commending GWG for having.

If someone plays PC and improves it regularly, buying an Xbox is pointless. I used to play a lot on PC, but in recent years I have been completely rejected by computer gaming, so now only consoles count. And I suspect a lot of people think the same.

BTW I recommend giving TLoU2 a chance. Amazing game.



Based on the list in the OP. Xbox Series X takes the W.

I'm never going back to any 3rd or fps on console.  I'm not playing at sub 165FPS, and I'm not aiming with a controller.  TLoU2 is terrible.  I would have to be paid to play it.  Wouldn't even play it for free.  No thanks.
